Gustos Coffee Co., a specialty coffee roasting plant in San Juan, announced this week it is expanding its presence at Pueblo Supermarket stores, offering a number of new products.
Consumers can purchase Gustos Premium gourmet grounded coffee in 12 ounce bags; Casa Grande House Blend made out of 100 percent Arabic beans in 12 ounce packages; Bai5, an antioxidant drink infused with coffee and fresh fruits; and Long Island Iced Tea, a low-calorie cold tea beverage elaborated in different flavors.
“The support of Pueblo supermarkets helps us reach more locations in Puerto Rico and it helps increase the distribution of our top notch products,” said Daniel Omar Torres, owner and president of Gustos Coffee Co.
Both coffee brands are already sold in all Walgreens stores in Puerto Rico and Casa Grande coffee is currently available at Ralph’s Food Warehouse in the east coast of the island and Selectos supermarkets in the west coast of Puerto Rico.
“This business with Pueblo supermarkets represents for Gustos Coffee Co. an annual income of about $200, 000,” said Joel Vera, vice president of sales for Gustos Coffee Co. “Now local coffee aficionados and clients of Pueblo supermarkets have another top quality, affordable option on the shelves.”
Gustos Coffee Co. has 80 employees in charge of delivering to its 2,500 clients. Company services include providing coffee vending machines to hospitals and other businesses, coffee break machines for offices, sale of Rancilio and Marzocco espresso coffee machines for restaurants, cafeterias, bakeries, coffee shops and hotels.
